How To: Install Modbus Protocol Tester

To install MPT on your computer simply run SetupMSTH.msi and follow the on-screen instructions. The only option to choose is the installation folder for the application. You would typically install this in the computer's Program Files folder. The setup program installs the following components on to your disk:

  • The Modbus Protocol Tester application.
  • A Modbus TCP Slave Device Simulator which you can use as a device while learning to use the MPT.
  • The Users Manual for the Tester.
  • Subsequent to the installation, the above three components can be accessed using the Windows Start Menu at Start Menu -> All Programs -> Modbus Protocol Tester


    The following are the pre-requisites for being able to install/run MPT:

  • Operating System: Windows XP SP2 or Windows Vista (any version)
  • A Network Interface Card (wired or wireless) for using MPT in Modbus TCP mode
  • .NET Framework 3.0 or higher (can be downloaded in Microsoft Download Center)
  • Important:
    The MPT will not be able to connect to a Modbus TCP device if Firewall is enabled on your computer. Either disable Firewall or add Modbus port no. 502 under the Exceptions List of your Firewall.
